URN anchor attribute and it's behavior....

After looking over the current spec and picking apart the unstated but
possibly implied differences between HREF and URN, I have a question:

CAN <A URN="value"> mean retrieve the page that has this Uniform Resource
Name once it has been resolved into a URL?

Currently the spec says that the URN attribute only has value when in
conjunction with an HREF.

Is this the intended meaning and if so can that intended meaning be changed
in order to accomodate URN->URL resolution?
